Description

This color postcard features three young African American children in early twentieth century clothing and bare feet. Two of the boys are wearing hats. The child in the center is kneeling with his back to the other two boys, the child on the left is looking away with a hand to his face, and the child on the right is holding a bag. The title at the bottom of the card reads "GOLLY, SOMEBODY'S COMIN'".
